Does the IVS on the new cameras work that well?Man it only took me one night of the "bug party" to look for an alt strategy for motion events. Spring on a mountain in Georgia is bug city. IVS intelligent functionality on the HDW5231R-Z was the ticket for sure! Not one single false alarm in two days (not a long time I know) but it's properly identified tripwire event every single time. I manually tested it about 8 times, even trying to trick it a few times by hugging the wall or moving very fast and it nailed me every time. It has grabbed every person walking towards my house and all coming/ going vehicles which is how I wanted it to behave. Beats the fuckerdoodles out of using motion events. I'm definitely going to snag one of these fixed turrets for my front door and I think my back yard (there's nothing in my backyard that makes sense to zoom on), then hopefully find a 6mm or maybe another 5231R in stock at some point for my driveway.
I remember just trying the motion detection back on the Hikvision cameras to try to avoid upgrading my server as doing the video analytics on the server can be CPU intensive. My experience then was pretty poor. I remember reviewing the video after a week and seeing in-between clips where a car would appear or disappear in front of my house; that was a complete show-stopper for me if the camera could miss an event like that. How could I count on that? Server side VMS and analytics that never happened, so I've insisted on that ever since. So no bug recordings with the IVS tripwire? I may have to give this a second try, could be useful at night on two of my cameras.
